My very first blog post. I'm not quite sure why I feel compelled to have a blog except that I think it might be a way for me to work through a very complicated time in my life. I don't think anyone will read this, which is fine. I do think it will be a way for me to organize a lot of chaos in my head.
This blog will be my therapy and a way to be able to move forward after the collapse of The Elements Food Group, my restaurant, cafe and catering company. I don't think I've fully dealt with this loss. But I don't want this blog to be about the difficulties of my bankruptcy or financial struggles. I want this to be a very positive way for me to refocus myself.
"What do I want to do now?" will be what this blog is about. This is finally the time to do those things (write a cookbook, write a novel, explore hosting a TV cooking / lifestyle show, start a blog, create a garden--and this list will grow!) that I have been putting off for so long. What I hope this blog does is to motivate me to start these projects because I will have an obligation to present my progress. I now have to go and plan what I want to bring next. I'm already getting excited and nervous thinking about what to present first and can see this could be a lot of fun! Maybe the next post will be the more complete list of "What do I do now?" ...hmm...well, until very soon.
